Stylish roof garden design and ideas - from New York to London
Inspired by projects such as The High Line in New York City, architects, gardeners and urban planners are transforming the most overlooked and underused part of any building - the roof. With a little thought and innovation it is possible to transform a roof into a space of relaxation, entertainment and play.
In a new book, landscape designer Ashley Penn examines 35 exquisite balcony and rooftop garden designs. Living Roofs covers the best of traditional and contemporary 'green' roofs and roof gardens. It is sure to inspire everyone: from urban garden design experts to home gardeners looking to make the most of their own city gardens, terraces and balconies.
